What do you mean? Also does anyone know which season/collection it's from?

Probably making a joke about either quality or the fact that they're part of the "Replica" line. Those should be from F/W last year no? They've done a variety of colorways over the last year.

FWIW, my MMM footwear has all been pretty decent.

^ it's just the leather on the straps reminding me of fake rick sneakers. Also the previous season's model looked infinitely better imo

It's a different model entirely, just a basic smooth leather- not sure why it makes them look fake. Theres also mesh at the toebox, I believe they are a s/s model.

black icarus
white raf velcros
black/white velcros

Pretty sure 2k is way too much to blow on sneakers in one go, but anyway:

Solid colored Balenciaga Hi's, still one of the best baller sneakers available in both design, price and quality
Common Projects lows, simple but for classics there really isn't a better white or black low sneaker
Last pick is kinda whatever, but KVA runners are really cool and would with the above two choices cover a rather wide spectrum of different styles

what other shoe should i be looking at ? under 650.

 

i have common projects black winter achilles w/ white lines, lanvin suede super dark blue with smooth casual non-patent toe-cap (patent for me is too flashy), MMM replica GATS (white + gray)

 

im looking to expand my footwear, what else should i be looking at thats good for my style? i prefer casual , slick but subtle flash shoes. looking for another black + white line type of shoe.

Raf Simons velcro, KVA - those come first to my mind.

For 2k if they HAD to be sneakers, get some Augusta. or Maybe a pair of Rick and Boris on sale. 

But honestly, I would drop that $2k on a pair of Baller boots and use the change on some Eytys, vans vault, stan smiths or 70s chucks and call it a day. 

 

edit: or some SLP or Common Projects on deep deep discount (like $150-$250)

You pretty much have the usual suspects in baller sneakers. Might as well get a pair of Drkshdw ramones or SLP's.

I like the raf velcros.. never thought of that..

My initial thoughts were immediately along the lines of classic lanvin lows, MMM Gats, and something flashy..

Hmmm...

CPs are ok, but never really appealed to me that much.. I mean I guess deeply discounted white Achilles are great, but.. hmm...
